Oologah senior Tristan Owens has brought home another track championship

Owens and runners from the Jenks America Track Club won a national championship last month in the 3,200m relay.

The relay team took first at the USA Track and Field Nationals June 24-29 at the University of Indiana in Bloomington.

“It felt great to win it,” Owens said. “I love running with my teammates. They push me a lot.”

This is Owens’ fourth time to compete with the Jenks Club at nationals and his second national championship. Owens won the race with Jacob Jansen, Noah Soap and Cody Jones from Jenks. He said the 6A school has one of the most competitive track programs in the state.
